Far more than brain surgery, neurosurgery involves the diagnosis and treatment of conditions of the entire nervous system, from the brain and spinal cord to nerves that run throughout the body (including the face, arms, hands and legs). Because neurosurgeons treat injuries, disorders and diseases affecting nerves in both adults and children, procedures are performed for a wide range of conditions such as chronic pain, epilepsy, stroke, Parkinson’s disease, brain tumors, hemorrhages, sports injuries of the head and spine, pinched nerves in the neck, lower back pain, sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, trauma and pituitary gland tumors.
